Conceptualization and OriginEdit
- Enbizaka's name literally means "round slope"; fittingly, Enbizaka itself lies on a hill slope.
- In a livestream, mothy stated that Enbizaka is inspired by Dejima, an artificial bay built by merchants that served as the single trade hub for Japan and other countries during the Edo period.
- The city's name and pronunciation is partially inspired by the English word "envy" (エンヴィ) , pronounced similarly to "enbi" (エンビ).
